Clemson Defeats Alabama In National Championship, 35-31 |

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
Per Deshaun Watson never won the Heisman Trophy but consistently told everyone who would listen he believed he was the best player in college football.

After leading Clemson back from a two-touchdown deficit and taking down the kings of college football to deliver the Tigers their first national title since 1981, no one is going to argue with him. Clemson beat Alabama 35-31 on Monday night in a game for the ages, and it was Watson's 420 passing yards, 43 rushing yards and four total touchdowns (three passing) that ensured the Tigers won the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.

They need to change the design of the NC trophy. Looks like a giant tube of lipstick. The crystal football was much better.
